And women in the area have formed a vigilant group to save their husbands from the sex workers by following them to their drinking places as well as stand on guard to rescue victims.

Agness Chase said the women have since organized themselves to effect citizen’s arrest on those suspected to be prostitutes and women who moved in the night at an awkward time.

She said Kamanga compound was no longer a safe place to move in the night because thieves have also taken advantage of the situation and people were not at peace.

The women said they will not let their husband being abused by prostitutes who could end up infecting them with sexual diseases but they will ensure that they protected their husbands.
